    Some schools emphasize the PAT most, other like the AA. I've never head of TS being emphasized the most. However, I would wager most schools like to see consistancy in all three. So if you have 25/23/15, you had best be prepared during any interview to explain why your PAT was so low.

    Calling the schools and asking would probably gain the most useful information regarding the test.

    I'm sure that different schools do different things.

    One of the schools that I'm applying to posted a formula that they use to select many of the people that they interview. It used a combination of the DAT-AA, science GPA, and overall GPA.
